* The life on both titans reflects the very nature of the two gods. [[spoiler: The Bionis is filled with creatures that need to kill each other to survive, forcing a survival of the fittest mindset that is meant to keep life bound to Zanza. Gathering ether also requires people to dig into the very titan to collect it and go into mines, where monsters await to fight and kill them. The Mechonis is free of hostile lifeforms that could threaten the Machina, who are able to gather ether easily from the floating devices Meyneth built for them to collect it from. Likewise the dangers of living in a giant machine are somewhat negated due to child Machina residing in floating devices that are part of their bodies until they reach adulthood, preventing them from falling into the toxic ether found at the bottom. What monsters that ''do'' exist in the Mechonis are the Mechon, which were built originally to protect and help the Machina.]]

** Another one of his visions involve [[spoiler:Otharon pulling a HeroicSacrifice to stop Xord]]. Except that in reality, it turns out that [[spoiler:Xord would have survived that]]. Had Shulk not defied that vision, [[spoiler:Otharon would have died for nothing]].

* After beating the game, watch the opening cutscenes again. First, [[spoiler:in the battle of the titans, the Mechonis is mainly defending from the Bionis' attacks.]] Second, [[spoiler:Dickson's remarks that "you can't talk reason into a beast" [Dunban] take on a darker tone.]]

* The fact that [[spoiler:you need a lot of ether to turn High Entia into Telethia doesn't make much sense when you consider the fact that Zanza requires a large amount of energy to be reborn. But one of the first things you hear about Telethia is that they absorb large amounts of ether from their surroundings. Their main function seems to be to gather the ether for Zanza, in addition to being used to kill uncooperativesentient life.]]

So, this is a literal case of [[DeusExMachina Deus Ex]] [[IncrediblyLamePun Machina]].

** In addition, [[spoilers:Kallian states that the Havres units, the flying vehicles the High Entia bring to Sword Valley, were created by Lorithia and her Ministry. In all likelihood, the Havres were ''purposefully'' designed to overload their pilots with ether on command, turning the pure High Entia that were riding in them into Telethia.]]

!!FridgeBrilliance* It's possible that the entire Ministry of Research is working, knowingly or not, for [[spoiler: Zanza and/ or the Bionite Order. Lorithia is the head of the Ministry of Research, and we see her in a room with Telethia in tanks in a cut scene. You also hear from Jer'ell about rumors that they're doing inhumane experiments while she's in Alcamoth.]] ** In addition, [[spoilers:Kallian states that the Havres units, the flying vehicles the High Entia bring to Sword Valley, were created by Lorithia and her Ministry.

* It seems unlikely that no person ever discovered the fact that [[spoiler:High Entia spontaneously mutate into Telethia when exposed large amounts of ether]]. For one, it seems to be very easy to just [[spoiler:accidentally turn into one]] if that were the case. However, given that there are still Telethia flying around Bionis [[spoiler:without Zanza's presence]] indicates the possibility that [[spoiler:some DID turn into Telethia and the ones still remaining are just mutated High Entia]]. After all, it is implied that previous High Entia rulers did know about this and tried to keep it a secret.

* Egil's Gold Face Mechon is named Yaldabaoth. This seems like a random name until you progress further into the story. Yaldabaoth in Gnostic mythology is an arrogant solar deity who suffers from a complex of cosmic egotism and falsely believes himself to be the only god in the entire cosmos. [[spoiler: Sounds like a certain Zanza that Egil wishes to destroy. In naming his Mechon Yaldabaoth, Egil mocked the fuck out of Zanza to boot]]. Also worth pointing out is that Gold Face has a tail; while unusual, it represents the Gnostic Yaldabaoth, who is a serpent.
